This time of the year has always been my favorite. I love the cooler temperatures and the way the air feels so crisp. It is also the time of year that I want to spend doing things outdoors with family and friends.
Since it's just me and my husband here and my children and grandchildren…
I love to cook and entertain. Nothing makes me happier than having a house full of friends and family. To me good food and good company go hand in hand. When people are enjoying the food that I made, it warms my soul.
My favorite things to cook
This is a tough one...I love to cook most everything. I am most interested in mediterranean cooking, but Thai cooking is also something I enjoy. I also love to grill and of course, I love good old down home southern cooking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My absolute favorite tradition is cooking the turkey and all of the fixin's for Thanksgiving. I alternate the turkey from year to year, switching between 2 different recipes, but the sides are pretty much the regular traditional stuff. I do, however, try to .lighten up the recipes whenever possible
My cooking triumphs
My triumphs happen when the people I am cooking for ask for seconds or when they ask me for the recipe! Nothing makes me happier than seeing people enjoying my food.
For me, cooking = love!
